New partnerships with New Mexico Arts and New Mexico Music Commission bring free Artist INC Express trainings to a new region
Building a business or career around an art practice isn’t like building any other small business. Artists face different challenges: how to manage goals, write about art, plan a budget, speak in public, and build a personal brand.
Artist INC Express: Not your regular business class
Artist INC Express, a program of Mid-America Arts Alliance, addresses the challenges artists and creatives face, helping them take control of their art careers. Now, in partnership with New Mexico Arts and New Mexico Music Commission, Artist INC Express is bringing that training to New Mexico to help artists learn business skills relevant to their work and turn their art practices into sustainable art careers.
Unlike other entrepreneur- and business-focused classes, Artist INC Express is tailored for the needs and challenges of working artists of any discipline. Artists learn and grow together in small groups led by peer facilitators.
These workshops immediately activate a network of artists in their community leading to additional peer-to-peer resource sharing and support, long after the workshop concludes.
Artist INC EXPRESS (AIX), virtual, nine-hour workshops
Who it’s for: Artist INC Express is open to artists and creatives of all disciplines and at all stages of their careers.
Led by professional artist facilitators, the intensive nine-hour workshop addresses the specific professional needs and challenges that artists of all disciplines face.
The two- to three-day deep dive is highly interactive and includes activities and discussions focused on goal setting, writing about your work, and building a personal brand—the building blocks for a sustainable art practice and a successful arts business.
All sessions are online.
